Excellent experience. U-Haul associate was very responsive to our needs. Hookup and turn-in went quite smoothly. Will recommend this location to friends and relatives. Tandem axle trailer towed well both empty and loaded. Expect to rent from this location again in the future.

our original pickup location was Governors Dr in Huntsville,AL. we reserved a 20' truck and an appliance dolly. i was advised by a former customer to double check that a dolly was available on my pick up day. they were told there was not one for them. so , i went to the location 18 hours before my scheduled pick up, to ask face to face about my dolly reservation. i was told i did not even have a truck reservation at that location. they didn't even look at my email confirmation. my pick up had been changed, although i was not informed. i went to Brownsboro to confirm yet again. Greg, facility manager there, told me there was not even a guarantee that the truck i was supposed to pick up would even be there the next morning. and in fact it was never returned. in the meantime we made a separate reservation over the phone for another truck and dolly, with assurance it would be at said location the next morning. low and behold, no reservation was found for us at that location , we were sent to University Place to pick it up ,and yet again there was not truck for us. in the meantime again, Greg at Brownsboro was holding a 15' truck that we were finally able to secure, 6 hours late. Don't think UHaul will by first choice again

Greg made us feel like we were his only customers. He went above and beyond on more than one occasion, from checking to ensure we secured our unit properly, to providing us with every discount we were eligible to receive. A great experience, all around.

I truly hated having to give up our unit at this storage facility, was only because we ended up needing a larger unit that they did not have. "Greg", who manages this facility went above and beyond supporting us during our short time using this facility.

While the location I ended up using was excellent, my overall U-haul experience was among the worst of any I've had in many years. Supposedly because of an equipment issue (as per U-haul scheduler) my pickup location was changed the night before my move adding miles and effort. When I arrived at the new pickup location, the office was locked and the assigned truck had a keyed lock. I called a scheduler who was helpful and ended up sending me to my originally requested pickup location.

Rep was very impressive. Super quick, helpful, professional. Took time to hook everything up for me and give tips/answer questions. I have a large family and the trailer was necessary to haul all our stuff for a week at the beach. His help removed what could have been a stressor item and made the trip more enjoyable. Grateful and encouraged by outstanding customer service. I'll make it a point to return to this location!

The gentleman was very attentive and came out the minute I arrived in the parking lot. The biggest frustration about the entire experience was having the person who took my reservation repeat and confirm multiple times that my drop off would be in Huntsville and that would qualify me for a special price. I confirmed Huntsville AL multiple times. I only learned that my brow off was in Brownsboro AL instead, adding an extra 50 minutes of driving for me. No one notified me of that change. No one I spoke to on the phone the few times since that discovery was willing to look for any other closer drop off location. Even over several days on a weekend, I was being told there was the change “probably because” there was no room anywhere else to return a trailer that might have left a closer location on a one way trip. Extremely frustrating. There is no spot in this review process to talk about the customer service line or scheduling line, so I apologize for using this space to speak about these lovely people to discuss other things that was extremely inconvenient and pissed my entire moving team off. On top of that, I have a disabling chronic pain condition and driving long distances has bad effects on my health. As I was the person that needed to drop off this trailer, having to drive the extra hour was more than just inconvenient for myself. I would not be this angry if I had just been given a call with an apology, or if anyone I spoke to did anything more than shrug me off.
